All 11 Star Wars Movies Ranked
Today my boss Ryan rated all 11 Star Wars movies in order for May 4th. You can see that list here. While his list wasn't totally off, I have a few different views on the Star Wars movies.
I grew up with the prequels, and the first one I ever saw was episode 3. I got to see it in theaters as a kid. Needles to say that was probably the worst Star Wars movie to start with. RIP 80% of that movies cast.
It should also be noted I don't hate any Star Wars movies. I love them all for different reasons. Even my lowest ranked movies are still above a 70% rating for me.
11. Attack Of The Clones
This movie has some of the most quoted lines from fans... Sadly it's not for good reasons. This movies has some great scenes, but some of the worst dialogue. 70% rating.
10. Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace
Hear me out, Darth Maul along with actors Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor made this movie and its iconic parts, and one of the best fight scenes to this day. Not to mention Maul was so beloved they brought him back to life! You can learn more about the Star Wars Lore here. 75% rating.
9. Solo: A Star Wars Story
I'm not sure why, but I really enjoyed this movie, it shows what the under ground world is like in Star Wars. Plus for those of us that have watched the canon Star Wars TV shows, this movie was almost made for us. You can see what you missed in the shows here. 77% rating.
8. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The most controversial Star Wars movie of all time. Fans are split over it. The reason this one is my least favorite is for two reasons. The first is I can only remember a few actual highlights, but can remember flying Leia. The other is that it doesn't feel like a Star Wars movie. Director Rian Johnson is great at his job, but missed the mark for me here. This movie felt like an ending rather than a middle. 78% rating.
7. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
It was basically a copy paste of "A New Hope". Basic good fun, and had a lot for us to be excited about. The Last Jedi would crush many of those ideas. 79% rating.
6. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
It was fun, and that's what Star Wars is meant to be. Did it make sense? No not really. Did I have the most fun out of all the other newest movies? For sure! 80% rating
5. Star Wars: Episode VI - The Return Of The Jedi
An amazing ending to the original series. Very few beat it, but I do have a few more favorites. They also spent a bit to long of a time at Jaba's. 85% rating.
4. Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
The movie that started it all. Like I said, I love all Star Wars movies, but if I showed this movie to someone who's never seen Star Wars I don't think it could get them to fall in love with it like it did back when it was released. 88% rating.
3. Rouge One: A Star Wars Story
I had no idea a side story could be so iconic. So dark, and yet so hopeful. Not to mention DARTH VADER at the end! 90% rating.
2. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith
I have a love hate with this movies cause it was awful seeing it as a kid, but now I love it with a passion. So dark. Everything was also so preventable. I love when a movie adds more to the story. 95% rating.
1. The Empire Strikes Back
This is what the last Jedi wanted to be. Iconic and still my favorite movie to watch when it comes to Star Wars. 98% rating.
